    Default TrainSimulations - Sandpatch Development

    Hi Folks,

    Just curious - has there been any updates on TrainSimulations Sandpatch ? I've searched a bit and all I can find are two images and a comment that the grade needed to be rebuilt. Is it still in production ?

    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Scott

    It's definitely still a go. At this stage, the plan is for me to finish the La Grande Sub, and then get stuck into Sandpatch. I'm still working on rebuilding the track with Scale Rail, so it is definitely not dead!!!

    So let me get this straight. You want to fly on a magic carpet, to see the king of the potato people... and plead with him for your freedom, and you're telling me you're completely sane?

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the update - as someone mentioned in the other TrainSimulations thread - I'm ready for ANY US Route that is not west of the Mississippi and given our collective history with MSTS - Sandpatch holds a special place in many of our hearts.

    Best of luck with your projects.

    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Folks,

    I'm hoping they stick with the colorful classics era - we need dirt and grit back in our sim.

    They also previously mentioned the route would run from Cumberland to Connellsville.

    That's why we love that era - Colorful and gritty at the same time!

    The plan for the era at this stage is very late 80's/very early 90's (lets call it 1990 for giggles purposes). The reason for this will be that the Blue Lick Industrial, the Garrett to Berlin line, and the coal line to Salisbury, as well as the possibility of adding the line between Rockwood and Somerset.

    Now, the line to Berlin and the Blue Lick line are set in stone, as is the line to Salisbury.... the Somerset is in the air at the moment.

    The late 80s in to the 90s sounds fantastic. It was such an interesting time in those days. How extensive are the plans for Cumberland? Around that time period, In addition to the B&O main, CSX was still utilizing the ex WM Knobmount yard and Maryland Jct as well as a small section of the WM east to access Brocks Salvage Yard, and of course there is the WMSR to Frostburg

    At this stage, I'm looking to do AT LEAST the extent that MLT went up to, how far I go beyond that will be based on how detailed I want to make the town and yard vs. framerates. No point making it look fantastic and 100% of the yard if we're only going to pull 5 fps consistently. That being said, Sean did a great job with Mullan and making the town look great, but Missoula is a MUCH smaller yard than Cumberland is, so we'll see.
